Song of the Day - August 28, 2006

Much has been said regarding The French Kicks and their sound, some of it not always praise worthy, but I don't care. I enjoy their sound which is very hazy, full of sweet choruses, and pop-like harmonies, a post Beach Boy era sound, if you will. Their latest Two Thousand is in a similar vein. There are some ever so slightly subdued moments on the album, like "No Mean Time," which features acoustic guitar over electric, and "Go On," the album closer, a slighter darker tune that still can't escape the overall upbeat nature of the band. However, the album standout for me is "Also Ran." A song that features beautiful vocal harmonies, a definite 80's sound, with hints of The Cure, and shimmering guitar work. Click here to listen.
